The emotional truth behind Paris Jackson’s pensive walk on her father’s death anniversary

June 26, 2023

Taking a well-deserved pause from her nationwide tour, Paris Jackson, the enchanting singer-songwriter, took a leisurely stroll with her cherished Doberman Pincher, Koa, through the bustling streets of West Hollywood on Sunday.

Significantly, June 25 is a poignant day for the ‘Just You’ artist, as it commemorates the 14th anniversary of her renowned father, Michael Jackson’s tragic demise due to a lethal combination of propofol and benzodiazepine.

Recognized for her eye for fashion, the star, born and raised in Beverly Hills, was seen in a stylish ensemble of dark blue ripped skinny jeans and a tan-patterned jacket over a sleek black t-shirt. She coupled her attire with black high-top sneakers, and her long, dark brown hair was swept back off her face, adding a touch of volume with a subtle parting on the right.

While journeying across various streets and sidewalks, 25-year-old Jackson held her canine companion’s leash firmly. Despite the glaring sun and temperatures soaring above 70 degrees Fahrenheit, the fashionable musician adorned a pair of chic, large-frame sunglasses. Koa, wearing a dark harness and a blue bandana, walked obediently beside her, exhibiting the perfect canine walking behavior.

Following a month-long touring schedule, the ‘Bandaid’ artist has returned to her home in Los Angeles. She gave mesmerizing performances at massive events such as the 2023 Bonnaroo Music And Arts Festival and the 2023 BottleRock Napa Valley music festival.

The music tour is scheduled to pick up again at the Wonderstruck festival in Cleveland on July 8 and 9, as per her official website. The performances are planned to continue until August 29 in Grand Junction, Colorado, followed by a brief respite, and then a grand performance at the iconic Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on October 6.

Back on this fateful day in 2009, news of Michael Jackson’s death sent shockwaves around the world, mere weeks before his sold-out concert series was slated to commence in London, England.

Emergency services received a 911 call at 12:22 p.m. PT, reporting that the revered ‘King Of Pop’ was unresponsive. Paramedics rushed to the scene, performing CPR on Jackson en route to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. Despite their efforts, he was declared dead at 2:26 pm PT, an hour after reaching the hospital.

In the aftermath, it was disclosed that Jackson’s personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, had administered several medications to help him sleep at his rented mansion in Holmby Hills, Los Angeles. A heartrending moment arrived for 11-year-old Paris Jackson when she learned of her father’s untimely passing.

Reflecting on her loss in a 2017 Rolling Stone interview, Jackson said, ‘Time is said to heal, but it doesn’t. You merely adjust to the pain.’ She felt that the worst had already happened, hence any future hardships could not compare.

She shared that her father’s presence was constantly felt in her dreams. ‘He is always with me,’ she declared.

However, Paris faced tremendous struggles following her father’s death, descending into a dark period of depression and drug addiction, culminating in a suicide attempt at 15. She revealed her struggles with ‘self-hatred’ and ‘low self-esteem’, along with self-harming tendencies that she kept hidden from her family.

A decade later, Paris Jackson seems to have triumphed over these challenges, passionately pursuing a career in rock music.

Her recent single, Bandaid, showcases a captivating soft-hard dynamic in its verses and choruses, reminiscent of legendary alternative rock bands like Nirvana. Additionally, her catchy, mid-tempo rock hit, Just You, released in 2022, has also garnered acclaim.

Earlier, Jackson had released a set of new songs as part of The Lost EP, through Republic Records in February 2022. She also previously composed music as one half of the duo, The Soundflowers, together with Gabriel Glenn. Their debut self-titled EP, characterized by a minimalist acoustic sound with Jackson on vocals and ukulele, and Glenn contributing with guitar and vocals, was released in June 2020.
